It's been a while since we've had the whole Mobile Nations team together. This time around we talk BlackBerry 10, HTC One, Nokia Lumia 900, the new iPad, something something webOS, and Google Drive. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

Software they should but even though I would love to see the device, they should not...

There will be no bb10 device shown next week.

Maybe in August but for sure not 5 days from now.

I think the Mobile Nations podcast is even more entertaining than our very own CrackBerry podcast. Beyond that, it's quite informative with the different views from the "heads of state" from the other platforms.

A few classic moments:
CBK mentioned an accessory for the 9981 is about 16 shares of RIM, and Derrick said he would choose the accessory over shares of RIM.

Derrick made a point about BB "looking" complicated because of the number of keys the devices. CBK counted 42 keys, and Rene says, "There's a shift key so that's really 84 keys." A laugh out loud moment for me.

Really enjoyed this from Mobile Nations. As was commented there is a mobile out there for everyone. I agree that RIM needs to go for quality not quantity.

Wonderful conversation and a good chain of thoughts..
@Kevin: Wonderful Job supporting BB. Love you for that.. Am from INDIA and I read through your blog everyday.. I think BB has being doing well in INDIA for some time now.. They had 2.5% market share of smart phones in 2009, now they have a 22.5%.. A feat no other company could do, that to with very minimal marketing.. BB will do even better with the new low end BB OS 7 Device 9220.. And I think BB is a lot different from any other company.. Because BB is a Network Provider, Hardware Manufacturer and has its own software.. BB becoming as Web Os2 can never happen only as ppl hardly know about Web OS.. BB has brand abroad for being secure, functional & social.. And as BBM catching up well with youngsters.. Today ppl are eager for the launch of Playbook LTE and BB London.. Am proud to say BB for life.. BB London for sure whatever it is and however it is will still Storm the Market..
And about Android as an ecosystem, I think they are too many companies offering the same specs only with a camera or display a lil different.. Once ppl start realizing this fact then they actually look for systems that work totally different from Inside.. It might be a quad core or hexa-core but the point is basic thing it has to be different..
Good Work Windows team.. Thumbs up for Nokia 900..
Speaking of iOS or Apple.. The company is doing well because of Steve Jobs creations.. Now that the great master-minded coach of the entire Apple Team has left them now.. Let's see how Mr. Tim Cook as a captain will fair.. The game is played differently on the field and I think Apple will die soon as a Giant.. May be not now but may be in few years..
Namaste and Off..
Prudhvi..
